A local (and lovely!) gallery, the VAE, holds a juried show every few years for unframed works on paper. I entered a journal this year — have I mentioned I love keeping a watercolor journal? — and not only got in, but won an award! Now I have an excuse to buy more journals.
Here are a few pages from the journal in the show. It was a varied, workbook kind of thing, with some on-site sketches, some children’s illustrations, a few botanical studies, and, inevitably, a shopping list or two.
